Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles at the Textile Museum of Canada
This month we have our annual trip to the Textile Museum of Canada, this time for a guided tour of the current exhibition, ‘Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles’.
Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles presents over 50 textiles and garments from the Textile Museum of Canada’s collection of 19th and 20th century artifacts made in Japan for both everyday and occasional use. The exhibition focuses on the highly refined skills and materials by which textiles have been constructed and decorated over centuries, and on how diligence and ingenuity have shaped their timeless beauty.
This event is for members only. Please arrive at 6:15pm, sign in at the desk, then meet upstairs outside the shop for a tour (6:30-7:30pm). Feel free to come earlier to browse the museum in your own time.
